Walk Mill offers a great opportunity for a day out with family or friends. Not only can you watch the mill equipment in action and have a tasty meal, you can also take one or our range of interesting and scenic walks through the Cheshire countryside around our Mill – just ask for a leaflet when you visit or download one here.
What’s more there are plenty of places nearby, or within reasonable driving distance, to help extend your day out or for your UK break or “staycation.” We provide a list of one or two below to get you started.
